Welcome to the Wild Wild West! For Spring 2016, Claire Pettibone took her Romantique collection to the prairies with endless lace and untamed beauty.
Claire Pettibone's 'Into the Sunset' collection gave a nod to pioneer style with names such as Cheyenne and Jesse evoking the romance of the Wild West. With an abundance of champagne and ivory vintage lace and prairie girl frills the simple silhouettes (think: high Victorian necks and sheer long sleeves) were kept modern with black accents, low cut backs and illusion necklines.
The models, sporting cowboy hats and messy low ponytails, drifted down the catwalk to a fitting cover of Bob Marley's 'I Shot the Sheriff'. Pettibone's collection featured gathered high necks, scalloped lace edges and touches of black ribbon and lace throughout.
The standout dress was a black lace sleeveless gown with deep v-neck, with crystal jewelled belt and Spanish style black tulle and lace full length veil.
This Western romanticism was further enhanced by floral appliqués, beading and embroidered lace, remaining true to her ultra-feminine and stylish details that we have come to know and love.
Brides looking for a feminine, romantic style with a bit of something different will love this edgier, daring side of Claire Pettibone Romantique.
